⚠️ This project is abandoned due no any progress in libtoxcore for a year - unfortunately seems Tox project is dead :(


pytoxcore

Build Status Coverity status

Python binding for ToxCore.

Download / Install

Compile from sources

$ python setup.py build
$ python setup.py install

To compile with TokTok toxcore implementation:

$ CFLAGS="-DTOX_TOKTOK" python setup.py build

Usage

See Echo Bot Example.

Documentation

Most methods of ToxCore, ToxAV and ToxDNS classes well documented in original tox.h, toxav.h and toxdns.h.

Also you can get help from extension itself:

$ python
>>> from pytoxcore import ToxCore, ToxAV, ToxDNS
>>> help(ToxCore)

Additional non libtoxcore api methods and callbacks described below.

ToxCore

tox_keypair_new

Return new (public_key, secret_key) tuple. Used to create new tox account.

tox_keypair_new()
tox_public_key_restore

Return public key restored from secret key.

tox_public_key_restore(secret_key)
tox_nospam_new

Return new random nospam value as hex-string.

tox_nospam_new()
tox_address_new

Return ToxID from public key and nospam value.

tox_address_new(public_key, nospam)
tox_address_check

Check given ToxID and throws exception if address is invalid.

tox_address_check(address)
tox_sendfile

Send file identified by path to a friend like system sendfile. Return file_number on success like original tox_file_send. Call tox_sendfile_cb callback (see below).

tox_sendfile(friend_number, kind, path, filename, timeout)
tox_sendfile_cb

This event is triggered when tox_sendfile call finished.

tox_sendfile_cb(friend_number, file_number, path, filename, status)

status may be one of:

  • TOX_SENDFILE_COMPLETED - call finished successfully;
  • TOX_SENDFILE_TIMEOUT - send timeout occured;
  • TOX_SENDFILE_ERROR - filesystem, toxcore or other error.
tox_recvfile

Receive file from a friend and store it to path. Call tox_recvfile_cb callback (see below).

tox_recvfile(friend_number, file_number, file_size, path, filename, timeout)
tox_recvfile_cb

This event is triggered when tox_recvfile call finished.

tox_recvfile_cb(friend_number, file_number, path, filename, status)

status may be one of:

  • TOX_RECVFILE_COMPLETED - call finished successfully;
  • TOX_RECVFILE_TIMEOUT - receive timeout occured;
  • TOX_RECVFILE_ERROR - filesystem, toxcore or other error.

ToxAV

toxav_video_frame_format_set

Set video frame format for toxav_video_receive_frame_cb callback (see below).

toxav_video_frame_format_set(format)

Format may be one of:

  • TOXAV_VIDEO_FRAME_FORMAT_BGR - BGR frame format;
  • TOXAV_VIDEO_FRAME_FORMAT_RGB - RGB frame format;
  • TOXAV_VIDEO_FRAME_FORMAT_YUV420 - (default) YUV420 format.
toxav_video_send_frame

Original toxav_video_send_frame method splitted into three to send frame in BGR, RGB and YUV420 (default) formats.

toxav_video_send_bgr_frame(friend_number, width, height, bgr)
toxav_video_send_rgb_frame(friend_number, width, height, rgb)
toxav_video_send_yuv420_frame(friend_number, width, height, y, u, v)
toxav_video_receive_frame_cb

This event is triggered when a video frame received. First for RGB/BGR video frame format, second for YUV420 (default).

toxav_video_receive_frame_cb(friend_number, width, height, rgb)
toxav_video_receive_frame_cb(friend_number, width, height, y, u, v, ystride, ustride, vstride)
